Eric the Red

Hi everyone, it's the mom bean.  I have indeed, left the kitties behind at home with my son who will take care of their every need, if not their every whim while I'm away.

We're out on the east coast of Canada, currently in Halifax, Nova Scotia.  One of the places we visited today was the Maritime Museum where the CSS Acadia is docked.  I was excited to find that Erik the Red was available for photographs.

We were very lucky to find him because as of tomorrow, Erik will officially retire.

He wasn't in the mood for a cuddle but he did allow a photo before he took his afternoon nap.

What a handsome boy! I hope he enjoys his well-deserved retirement.

Sasha, Sami, & Saku will be back in early October.  See you all then!


  1. Arrrrrgh! Eric the Red be a fine pirate!

  2. Erik is such a handsome kitty! Happy retirement to him!

  3. A well-deserved retirement, we're sure! Will they have a replacement?

    There's a feral colony down by the dockyard:

    Mom has sent me their calendar a couple of times, for Christmas. :-)

    Enjoy the trip!

  4. Eric é adorável!
    Fiquei curiosa para conhecer a história dele, vou procurar no google.
    Aproveite a viagem!

  5. Though it is unfortunate that his one eye had to be removed, it does make Erik look more piratical. Perhaps it's good that he's retiring, though. He deserves a good, long restful autumn.

  6. Sounds like you're having a wonderful time. Looking forward to hearing more about it!
